Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways. Task 244. Modifications for AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications to Incorporate or Update the Guide Specifications for Design of Pedestrian Bridges

The objective of this research is to prepare specifications and commentary for the design of pedestrian bridges in a load and resistance factor design format that can be recommended to AASHTO as a standalone guide specification. The specifications shall be based on the <em>AASHTO Guide Specifications for Design of Pedestrian Bridges, past successful experiences, and state-of-the-art research and knowledge. The specifications shall clearly identify the limits of applicability of the proposed provisions and shall reference appropriate articles of the <em>AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications</em> and the <em>AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications </em>as appropriate to avoid duplication.<br /></span></div>
